An apple tree is growing and leaning over a path. Can I rotate the tree so it leans away from the path?

If it is young, you may be able to get it to lean the other way or dig it up and turn it. But, if it is causing issues on the path, then I suspect it is not young. Once a tree is beyond a few years old, moving it will most likely kill it. There are professionals that can be hired to do it and increase the chances of the tree's survival, but there is always a chance the tree will still die.
